    Hello, I'm entitled to a laptop in my exam however the new Invigilators think its extra time (it's just a * next to my name) but this year I didn't want the laptop and did ask for extra time instead so I could handwritten but neatly and I was told no since I missed the testing, so I'm in the situation where I've been given extra time and I shouldn't have… should I come forward? if I don't and they find out what can happen? This happened and GCSEs as well and in my final exam they took it away, I said I thought I was entitled and they said no but managed to get 15 minutes extra because I said I worked slower thinking it'd be fine

    don't risk it and don't cheat, use the access arrangements you have been assessed for and given

    Maybe discuss it with student support, if you have time to before your exam?

    As in a week or at least a few days before, not on the day of the exam.

    Maybe just double check with a teacher or someone who maybe knows how it works, explain your situation and they will probably be able to guide you in the best possible way x
